February 21, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
Rescuers found a missing hiker who spent a chilly night lost in the mountains above Rancho Cucamonga Saturday. The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department says 19-year-old Daniel Travieso of Redondo Beach made a 911 call around 7:30 Friday night.

He said he was lost with no food and was not dressed for the cold weather.

Aerial and ground teams spent the night searching for him. They spotted him Saturday in Day Canyon and air lifted him out of the wilderness.

Travieso is being treated for exposure and frostbite at a local hospital.
